The Solar Eclipse In Albquerque

Eclipse Sunset

The (solar) annular eclipse was visible in Albuquerque this year right before sunset. Many people attended viewing parties on the west mesa or their homes. I managed to get out of work in time to see the eclipse at a party in Corrales. I think the eclipse was more fun when viewed with friends.


Wet Weather Expected. Also Sky is Blue, Earth is Round

The forecast calls for more rain this week. 2004 was one of the top ten wettest years since they started making records of such things. Just based on the first 2 months, 2005 could become the wettest!
